Particle dark matter: Evidence, candidates and constraints
In this review article, we discuss the current status of particle dark matter, including experimental evidence and theoretical motivations. We discuss a wide array of candidates for particle darkExpand
Environment and self-regulation in galaxy formation
The environment is known to affect the formation and evolution of galaxies considerably best visible through the well-known morphology-density relationship. It is less clear, though, whether theExpand
How small were the first cosmological objects
The minimum mass that a virialized gas cloud must have in order to be able to cool in a Hubble time is computed, using a detailed treatment of the chemistry of molecular hydrogen. With a simple modelExpand
Dwarf galaxies, cold dark matter, and biased galaxy formation
A reexamination is conducted of the formation of dwarf, diffuse, metal-poor galaxies due to supernova-driven winds, in view of data on the systematic properties of dwarfs in the Local Group and VirgoExpand
Dancing in the dark: galactic properties trace spin swings along the cosmic web
A large-scale hydrodynamical cosmological simulation, Horizon-AGN , is used to investigate the alignment between the spin of galaxies and the large-scale cosmic filaments above redshift one. TheExpand
Galaxy Zoo: the fraction of merging galaxies in the SDSS and their morphologies
We present the largest, most homogeneous catalogue of merging galaxies in the nearby Universe obtained through the Galaxy Zoo project – an interface on the World Wide Web enabling large-scaleExpand
Kerr black holes as particle accelerators to arbitrarily high energy.
We show that intermediate mass black holes conjectured to be the early precursors of supermassive black holes and surrounded by relic cold dark matter density spikes can act as particle acceleratorsExpand
Feedback, Disk Self-Regulation, and Galaxy Formation
Self-regulation of star formation in disks is controlled by two dimensionless parameters: the Toomre parameter for gravitational instability and the porosity of the interstellar medium to supernovaExpand
The Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Camera 3 Early Release Science Data: Panchromatic Faint Object Counts for 0.2-2 μm Wavelength
We describe the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) Early Release Science (ERS) observations in the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) South field. The new WFC3 ERSExpand
